          All Marjorie Taylor Greene was doing was trying to save lives. What was Twitter doing? On what basis would the FDA approve any of these experimental drugs, when in the past it has always required 10 to 15 years of research and observation before approving a new vaccine. All of a sudden they think they can start approving them in 2 years? Taylor Greene is not allowed the free speech to share her views?

Twitter suspends Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for one week following violation of platform rules

Twitter Suspends Marjorie Taylor Greene — For Saying FDA Should Not Approve Covid Vaccines

Twitter has suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for one week following another violation of the platform's rules, the company said Tuesday.

Greene tweeted on Monday that the Food and Drug Administration "should not approve the covid vaccines." She also claimed the vaccines were "failing" and that they were ineffective at reducing the virus's spread.
In response, Twitter labeled the tweet as misleading and prevented Greene from tweeting for one week.
Tuesday's suspension marks at least the third and toughest penalty Twitter has imposed on Greene for sharing misinformation. In January, Greene was suspended for 12 hours from Twitter for sharing conspiracy theories about the Georgia Senate runoff elections, a move that the company said violated its civic integrity policy. In July, Twitter suspended Greene again for 12 hours for sharing misinformation about Covid-19 and vaccines. (Greene was also temporarily suspended in March but was soon reinstated after Twitter said its automated systems had acted in error.)
According to Twitter's Covid-19 misinformation policy, users can receive a one-week suspension if they violate that policy four times. Violating the Covid-19 policy five or more times can result in a permanent ban. Twitter declined to say how many times Greene has violated the company's rules.

Taliban Spokesman Asked about Freedom of Speech, Tells Media Hacks to Go Ask Facebook, “This Question Should be Asked of Them”

TOLOnews on Twitter: "Happening Now - Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid  addresses reporters in Kabul. Watch live at…"Trump Executive Order Shows Facebook and Twitter's Clashing Policies

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid held a press conference on Tuesday in Kabul. Zabihullah was asked if the new Afghan Islamic government will honor freedom of speech.

He responded to the leftist journalists by telling them to ask the same thing of Facebook!

Zabihullah Mujahid: “This question should be asked of those people who pretend to be promoters of freedom of speech who do not allow publication of all information. I could ask Facebook company. This question should be asked of them.”

Under Joe Biden, Democrats, and their tech partners, the US has no moral authority in the world today. Nice work, Zuckerbucks.

        "Chase Bank has gone full blown woke!"

Big Tech, woke finance crack down on Flynn, Gateway Pundit, Berenson in cancel culture purge

In recent days, Twitter permanently banned independent journalist Alex Berenson, Google demonetized The Gateway Pundit from its ad network, and Chase Bank cancelled the credit cards of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

With national attention riveted over the weekend on two major stories — the frantic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan amid its fall to the Taliban and category 4 Hurricane Ida slamming into the Louisiana coast — Big Tech and woke finance dramatically extended the reach of cancel culture with brazen moves to silence and harass three high-profile voices of political and scientific dissent: independent journalist Alex Berenson, popular conservative news and opinion website The Gateway Pundit, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. 

On Saturday, Twitter permanently banned Alex Berenson, who has built a large social media following challenging public health establishment orthodoxy on COVID issues ranging from lockdown to vaccine mandates.

"The account you referenced has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules," a Twitter spokesperson responded to an inquiry from Fox News.

"Goodbye Twitter," Berenson headlined the announcement of his banning on his Substack page.

"This was the tweet that did it," he wrote above a screen capture of the post that apparently triggered his purge from the dominant microblogging platform. "Entirely accurate. I can't wait to hear what a jury will make of this."

In his original offending tweet on the the COVID vaccine, Berenson wrote: "It doesn't stop infection. Or transmission. Don't think of it as a vaccine. Think of it — at best — as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS. And we want to mandate it? Insanity."

Twitter has been criticized for anti-conservative viewpoint bias and censorship, including permanently banning former President Trump following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, citing the platform's policies on incitement to violence.

Twitter has consistently denied charges of ideologically selective censorship of user content.

Meanwhile, on Thursday search and online advertising giant Google took aim at The Gateway Pundit, a conservative online news and opinion site that is ranked in the top 200 of U.S. websites according to Alexa and in the top 50 of English language news websites, according to a study prepared for media industry news site PressGazette.

"Google demonetized the Gateway Pundit from their ad network," the site's founder and editor Jim Hoft reported on Saturday.

"We're emailing you to let you know that we've repeatedly found content on one of your sites that violates our Google Publisher Policies," the search giant notified Gateway Pundit's legal department.

In explaining its move, Google cited two categories of violations: "Dangerous or derogatory content" and "Misreprentative — Unreliable and harmful claims."

"The Gateway Pundit has an outstanding record of accurately reporting the top news stories of the day," Hoft shot back. "Because of our continued success and our honest conservative bent we are regularly censored."

Loss of revenue from Google Ads can be a severe blow to a digital news site, given the platform's commanding position within the online advertising marketplace.


"Google is truly one of the most dangerous companies in the world today."

The third victim of the weekend purge was former Trump National Security Adviser and director of the Defense Intelligence Agency during the Obama administration Michael Flynn, who posted to his Telegram account a notice from Chase Bank notifying him of the cancellation his credit cards.

"After careful consideration, we decided to close your credit cards on September 18, 2021 because continuing the relationship creates possible reputational risk to our company," read the terse update from the Cardmember Services division of Chase, the banking subsidiary of financial services behemoth JPMorgan Chase. 

"Chase Bank has gone full blown woke!" Flynn posted in reply.

       "Reacting to the move, he said Chase “has gone full blown woke!”

       I suspect that this idiotic move is going to cost Chase far more than they could have anticipated.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn Says Major U.S. Bank Canceled His Accounts

Former Trump national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said Sunday that Chase Bank sent him a letter informing him it is cancelling his accounts and credit cards because he poses a “reputational risk” to the company’s brand.

“After careful consideration, we decided to close your credit cards on September 18, 2021 because continuing the relationship creates possible reputational risk to our company,” the letter said, according to Flynn.

Flynn posted a screenshot of the letter on his Telegram social-media account.

Reacting to the move, he said Chase “has gone full blown woke!”

“They need to deal with their own reputation instead of persecuting my family and I,” he wrote.

He then referenced the Justice Department’s case against him in the Russia investigation, which the DOJ dropped after Flynn and his laywer, Sidney Powell, presented evidence he was “ambushed” by FBI agents after the bureau concluded it didn’t have a case.

“DOJ dropped my case for their own egregious government misconduct, appears you weren’t that lucky with the DOJ,” he wrote on Telegram, directing his words to Chase Bank.

Last September, Chase agreed to pay $920 million to resolve criminal charges brought by the DOJ in connection with schemes to defraud precious metals and U.S. Treasuries markets.

“I guess my America First political views don’t align with yours. Your loss,” Flynn wrote on Telegram.

       "Meanwhile, state legislatures have introduced and enacted legislation on data privacy, antitrust, and content moderation, while state attorneys general have issued a number of legal challenges alleging anticompetitive business practices."

Congress AWOL, so states take on Big Tech

Creating new requirements for privacy, content moderation, antitrust issues

Despite calls for increased regulation of the tech industry, Congress has yet to pass any major legislation, leaving it up to the states to take action curbing tech companies’ power and influence.

Meanwhile, state legislatures have introduced and enacted legislation on data privacy, antitrust, and content moderation, while state attorneys general have issued a number of legal challenges alleging anticompetitive business practices.

“With a bit of a vacuum at the federal level, states are looking to step in, whether that’s on content moderation, whether that’s on speech on platforms, antitrust and anticompetitive conduct regulation, data privacy,” April Doss, executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute for Technology Law and Policy, told Protocol last week.

Content Moderation

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation in May prohibiting tech companies from banning or suspending political candidates in the state, imposing fines of up to $250,000 per day a candidate is deplatformed. The law also holds social media platforms liable for certain content moderation decisions, in effect allowing Floridians to sue tech companies for banning or suspending their accounts.

“We took action to ensure that ‘We the People’ — real Floridians across the Sunshine State — are guaranteed protection against the Silicon Valley elites,” DeSantis said in a press release.

Though the law is currently being contested in federal court, similar bills have been introduced in Republican legislatures across the country.

Texas lawmakers introduced a bill backed by Gov. Greg Abbot earlier this month that seeks to classify social media companies as “common carriers” and subject them to similar regulation as public utilities like phone services. The legislation echoes a legal challenge to Google proposed by Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost in June that sought to declare the tech giant a public utility, an argument Justice Clarence Thomas has indicated could hold water.

Utah Republican Gov. Spencer Cox vetoed a bill passed by the state legislature in March that would have imposed substantial limitations on tech companies’ content moderation practices. If passed, the bill would have required social media platforms to notify users when moderating their speech, offer an appeals process for users to contest moderation decisions, and publicize their moderation policies.

Kentucky lawmakers proposed a law in January removing liability protections from social media companies that censor certain types of speech. Lawmakers in Oklahoma and Arkansas also introduced legislation designed to curb perceived political censorship, though the bills have not been enacted.


State attorneys general have brought several antitrust challenges to Big Tech, with Google alone currently facing four complaints brought by states alleging anticompetitive conduct.

Over 30 state attorneys general, led by Utah’s Sean Reyes, sued the tech giant in July for allegedly using anticompetitive tactics in its Google Play Store, such as forcing app developers to use Google’s payment processor for all in-app purchases. A similar complaint filed by app developers against Apple was settled Thursday, with the tech company agreeing to change some of its business practices.

        "Estimates are that approximately 150 babies per day are being saved because of Texas Right to Life’s leadership on the Texas Heartbeat Act."

BREAKING: GoDaddy deplatforms Texas Right to Life website that let people report violations of new Texas pro-life law 

Web domain hosting giant GoDaddy is deplatforming a website run by Texas Right to Life through which people can submit tips about violations of the Lone Star State’s robust new pro-life law that protects babies with beating hearts from being aborted.

A GoDaddy spokesman said in an email to the New York Times and The Verge, “We have informed they have 24 hours to move to another provider for violating our terms of service.”


There has been widespread pro-abortion panic after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the law, which lets private citizens sue abortionists or anyone aiding or abetting the abortion of a baby with a beating heart, to go into effect this week. The Supreme Court’s refusal to block the law has effectively ended all abortions after six weeks in America’s second-largest and second-most populous state.

Tonight a Texas state judge also temporarily blocked Texas Right to Life from enforcing the law against Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion business.

“Judge Maya Guerra Gamble’s (D) ruling does not invalidate the new law but rather halts Texas Right to Life and its associates from suing abortion providers and workers at Planned Parenthood clinics under the statute, S.B. 8, that took effect Wednesday,” The Hill explained.

The narrow, temporary ruling does not prevent other Texas citizens from suing those who commit or aid in an abortion, though.

        "Texans can sue social media companies under the law for discriminating against them, and the Texas attorney general can intervene on their behalf."

Texas latest state to crack down on Big Tech censorship

New law signed by Gov. Abbott allows Texans to sue social media companies if they are censored because of their political beliefs. Texas is the latest state to take aim at Big Tech, enacting a law that bans social media giants from censoring content based on political views. 

"We will always defend the freedom of speech in Texas,” Gov. Greg Abbott declared as he signed the legislation into law late last week.
"Social media websites have become our modern-day public square. They are a place for healthy public debate where information should be able to flow freely — but there is a dangerous movement by social media companies to silence conservative viewpoints and ideas,” he added. “That is wrong, and we will not allow it in Texas." 
The Texas Legislature passed HB20 during its recently completed special session. The law requires social media companies with 50 million or more users to publicly disclose their content management practices and policies and expressly prohibits them from targeting users solely because of their political or ideological beliefs. 
The law states, “a social media platform may not censor a user, a user’s expression, or a user’s ability to receive the expression of another person based on: (1) the viewpoint of the user or another person; (2) the viewpoint represented in the user’s expression or another person’s expression; (3) or a user’s geographic location in this state or any part of this state.”
Texans can sue social media companies under the law for discriminating against them, and the Texas attorney general can intervene on their behalf.
Florida recently enacted a law that would have prohibited social media platforms from banning political candidates, but a federal judge has temporarily blocked it.
While Republicans focus on preventing censorship, Democrats are targeting Big Tech with pressure to crack down on what they see as miss information on their platforms. And both parties are focused on Big Tech’s anticompetitive and monopolistic practices.
